Our Bios

Laura Finfer, Ph.D.

I bring three key ingredients to each engagement: intuition, a grasp of organizational dynamics and humor. While the work may delve into tough, uncomfortable territory, I share my insights and observations in a direct yet sensitive manner. And context matters; the system and its culture shape what is (or is not) valued. This perspective is integrated into the work. Finally, a sense of humor creates an informal, appealing atmosphere. My goal is to build on the talents and accomplishments of the team/leader, elevating them to the next level of excellence. I am exhilarated by what clients achieve over the course of the engagement.

I received a Ph.D. from Purdue University in Industrial-Organizational Psychology and am a licensed psychologist in NY State. Active in professional associations, I am passionate about female entrepreneurs and devote time to supporting their development. I also advocate for workplace inclusivity for individuals on the spectrum. With 25+ years of experience as an internal and external leadership expert, I co-founded LEC in 2008.

Lois Tamir, Ph.D.

I continue to be amazed at the talent I have the privilege to work with; and I learn something from each engagement with leaders and their teams. Every engagement is unique, unleashing creative thinking. I have the courage to deliver difficult messages, and the empathy to anticipate how they are best received. The thrill is in those memorable moments of insight that have lasting impact. It is a safe, yet vibrant environment to learn, challenge assumptions and experiment with concepts; as a result, leaders are emboldened to act in ways they had not considered before.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. My research in Developmental Psychology focused on how adults change from their 20s to 30s to 40s to 50s. On faculty, at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, I did research as a Clinical Associate Professor. During this time, I published my second book Men in Their Forties, which became a landmark in the field of Adult Development. As a licensed psychologist in New York, I have consulted with business leaders for 25+ years. In 2008 I co-founded LEC.
